    On the day leading up to the final rally of Donald Trump’s “thank you” tour, city officials in Mobile, Ala., raved about its plans for a festive, Christmas welcome for the president-elect. The mayor’s chief of staff tweeted that the city “did the impossible,” erecting and decorating a 50-foot Christmas tree as a backdrop for Trump’s speech. But some Mobile residents soon speculated that the majestic cedar tree was one they had seen before, AL.com reported. Just over a mile away from the stadium where Trump would speak, in a public park, a massive cedar tree was gone. As skeptical...

    With $65 million in new money thanks to the state's BP settlement, the long-beleaguered U.S. 98 project in coastal Alabama has a new life, but officials are proceeding cautiously.It was nearly a decade ago when a previous U.S. 98 project was shut down amid lawsuits and accusations surrounding sediment from the construction site that ran off into the waterways supplying a majority of the Mobile region's drinking water."The job has been redesigned," said Vince Calametti, ALDOT's Southwest Region's chief engineer. "There was an environmental assessment, and it will have to be re-evaluated. It will be one of the first things...

    iPhone fans are not going to like hearing this, but Samsung's Galaxy Note7 (yes, there's no space) is the best smartphone money can buy right now. I don't make that statement lightly. I've been a devout iPhone user who has owned four iPhones as his main everyday-carry phone for the last six years. Against all odds, Samsung has made the most impressive smartphone ever created.

    An attendee at Busch Stadium in St Louis was shot and mugged in November of 2015.  Justin Hulsey was inspired. He designed a business to make events safer and more convenient for the public. Because the Stadium is a gun free zone, he developed a way to minimize the time that people will be left unarmed. He created a way for them to safely store their self defense tools during the event they are attending. From fox2now.com: Hulsey calls it Mobile Safe Storage. He is outfitting a 22 foot-long step van with armor and security cameras and has hired...

    ST. LOUIS (KTVI) - Gun owners headed for Busch Stadium may soon no longer have to leave their firearms in the car. Starting in mid-July, Paddy O`s Bar next to Busch Stadium is going to allow a specially outfitted armored truck to use its overflow back parking lot to provide lawful gun owners a place to lock up any firearms they want to carry with them between the parking lots and the stadium. It is an idea born of tragedy. Following the shooting of Chris Sanna last year as he was leaving a Cardinals game, Justin Hulsey, a National Guard...

    The 10-question quiz included questions about prostitution, drugs, drive-by shootings and spray paint graffiti. According to WALA, one of the questions was: Leroy has 2 ounces of cocaine. If he sells an eight ball to Antonio for $320 and 2 grams to Juan for $85 per gram, what is the street value of the rest of his hold?" It was similar to a math quiz that's been on the internet for years with questions about gangs.

    Apple will likely take three years between full-model changes of its iPhone devices, a year longer than the current cycle. In a typical two-year term, fall 2016 was supposed to see a major upgrade. But the changes on the model to be launched this autumn will be minor, such as improved camera quality... These include a KGI report last month stating that the design would be largely unchanged and that it would not have ‘many attractive selling points.’

    The fact is, the mobile purchasing decision for most consumers is now more about buying into, and sticking with, an ecosystem than it is about a particular device -- no matter how well crafted. And Microsoft’s ecosystem can’t yet compete with what’s on offer from Apple, with its iTunes store, Beats 1 streaming radio, Apple TV and other cloud services. Phones that run Google Android, meanwhile, boast more than a million apps and seamless integration with a host of services like Docs, YouTube and Gmail. Microsoft’s problem is that most users in the U.S. already are on Android, which holds...

Airbus has set its sights on growing its share of the North American market for new airliners, which it estimates is worth £751bn over the next 20 years.

Just one day after the Bush Super PAC Right to Rise USA flew a tiny plane with a banner attached to the end of it over 2016 GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s Mobile, Alabama rally, the geniuses backing yet another Bush for president appear to have photoshopped a black man’s hand onto the former Florida governor. -snip- “Moments before Trump was...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump had 30,000 people attend his rally in Mobile, Alabama, on Friday, police said, narrowly edging out Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders for the largest crowd of the 2016 campaign season so far. The much hyped rally was held at Mobile’s Ladd-Peebles Stadium, which hosts the Senior Bowl and the GoDaddy.com Bowl college football games. Trump said his campaign had to switch the location of the event twice after demand for tickets exceeded capacity. Until Trump's event Friday night, the largest crowd at candidate's rally this election cycle was at an event held by Sanders earlier this...

    In Alabama, Trump’s Wizard of Oz Act Leaves Some Fans Underwhelmed QUIN HILLYER Toto the dog wasn’t needed in Mobile, Ala., Friday night to pull the curtain from behind The Great and Mighty Trump. Trump let his own curtain flutter open, showing to much of the audience the humbug within. In an hour-long verbal meanderthon at half-filled Ladd-Peebles Stadium, Trump allowed an atmosphere of electric excitement to dissipate, and then he split town without his promised post-show press conference. As I left the stadium, a red-hatted lady of my acquaintance spotted me and pulled me aside, saying: “Somebody needs to...

    Everyone thought that Donald Trump was way in over his head when he decided to throw his hat in the ring for 2016 presidential election. Now, there are not nearly as many people who think the same way, and that was evident when 30,000 people turned out for a Republican pep rally in Alabama on Friday. Now, he’s beginning to pull away from the rest of the field and very well could widen his lead in the 2016 presidential polls. Topped off in a red hat, Donald Trump stepped out before 30,000 supporters in Alabama on Friday night, and it...

    MSNBC host Chris Matthews speaks with NBC reporter Katy Tur, who is following Trump at a campaign rally in Mobile, Alabama where 30,000 people are expected to turn out to see The Donald. Matthews described the scene at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama as a "redneck riviera." Matthews asked the network correspondent, who was live on scene, if "any black people were there." "I have not seen any today that have come out for Donald Trump," Tur responded. "[They are] normal looking people, who have normal looking opinions on things," the intrepid Tur observed.

    Vivianna Rodriguez cannot wait for Donald Trump's speech Friday night in Mobile, Alabama. "I was shocked when I heard that he was coming to Mobile. But I was very excited [as well]. Not because he was speaking, but because we're going to do something about it," she said. Vivianna is a 24 year-old senior at the University of South Alabama —whose football stadium will host Trump on Friday— and she is an American-born daughter of a single-parent undocumented Mexican immigrant. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has referred to those with her background as "anchor babies." It's those types of comments...
